What to do when life hands you lemons? You sell pomegranates.
Shades. Bigger better? Or smaller wearable?
A light moment in the night market. It’s always the people who make or break a place. In this case, happiness came in a little bundle, and it’s not for sale.
Street vending is a way of life to many Thais. A great number of these vendors fight poverty and supplement their income this way. I learned that many of them hold day jobs and continued their livelihood in the evening by vending in night markets on the streets. These are amazing people who form a social, economic and cultural force that shape the urban landscape of Bangkok.
A main characteristic of the street anywhere in the world would be movement. People are constantly moving. There are things to be done and places to go to. Movement is life.
This stairway leads into the entrance of the Union Mall and this gentleman looks like he was striking a pose. He wasn’t, but merely coming down the stairs. There’s a certain light-hearted feel to his overall expression. I was glad to capture this moment and this photo puts a smile on my face.
An early morning scene on a street in Bangkok. Life is depicted here by a road side vendor and this monk.
At the Platinum Fashion Mall, everyone has an eye for fashion. Everyone.
There’s a strong mix of the old and the new in Bangkok. Stepping outside a modern mall brought me to a completely different world. I enjoyed my time wondering the streets, mingling with people in road side stalls, in vintage shop houses, on bicycles, on motorcycles, walking and stopping. It was a typical day in the lives of these locals and I was glad to be a small part of it.
Amazing lighting at the entrance of the Centara. That’s how it’s gonna be, taking my cue from the light.
